    I have never had this issue, but from what I have read you are supposed to get a wet, warm cloth and hold it to the vent area or soak the area in question.

    Will it go back in by itself? The vent box has an egg stuck in it.

    The egg needs to come out, but the vent will go back in. From what I have read (again I haven't had this problem), it is important to get it out because it can cause ill health to the animal.
